#150 Aboute a Picture

Playing golf in the sunset is one of my favorite things to do. The light can be so beautiful that I just have to take some pictures. Here is my son in the sun, aiming for the flag in the shadows. The camera exaggerate the differences between light and shadow. Often this can be a…

#149 One camera and one lens – Part 2

A while ago I wrote a post about traveling with just one camera and one lens (read the post here). My conclusion was that I would be just as happy with just a camera and a 35mm lens – instead of bringing a heavy bag with multiple lenses and cameras. Did I practice this as…

#148 About a Picture

Central Copenhagen, the other day. My first journey abroad for a long time. Had a great time with my camera. Hope to come back soon…

#147 The final verdict of the Leica M-D 262

If you read my last post, you know that I was thinking about if the Leica M-D 262 was the camera for me or not. I had this idea that a digital camera without a rear LCD would be the ultimate shooting experience. When I saw one for sale, I decided to try it out….

#146 A two month review of my Leica M-D 262

It is almost two months since I bought my Leica M-D, and I felt that it was time for a short text about my thought of it so far. If you don’t know what’s so special with a Leica M-D 262 here is a short summary: • A full frame, digital rangefinder camera with a…

#145 Canvas Icons

Every now and then I visit Cathedrals in the cities I pass by. I am not a religious person, but there is almost always something to shoot or discover in a Cathedral. On my last visit to the Cathedral of Linköping I ”found” some beautiful ”canvas icons”. The ”canvas icons” are part of an exibition…

#144 About a Picture

It was a hot day in Sweden and everyone seeked the shadow. The cows found theirs under an old oak tree. A couple of them looked at me and seemed to be telling me; ”Why are you out there in the sun? Come over here instead…”.

#143 Close enough?

I have always liked black and white film photography. I started out with Kodak Tri-X in the 1980:s and I still shoot it from time to time. But the thing is – todays cameras and post processing can make pictures almost as good as my old black and white Tri-X pictures. Sometimes even better… Recent…

#142 Feeling free

I took a trip to the sea, the other day. I was away for work, and had som time to spare between assignments. I found this small harbour in the outer archipelago and parked the car. I was completly alone in the harbour. Just me and the sea. The wind was blowing rather strong and…

#141 Lack of motivation

Sometimes it is hard to find motivation. I have suffered from loss of motivation for my photography for a while now. I have used my camera – but the result just doesn’t seem to make me excited. They are just boring pictures. I have carried my camera around several beautiful places the last few weeks…

#140 About a Picture

Still working at home, as I have been doing for more or less a year now. Took my camera for a walk on my lunch break and found these glasses, just waiting to be photographed. Wanted to try out my latest ”bargin” – a 90/2,8 Elmar from the 1980:s. A small lens – made in…

#139 The Camera of my dreams

Twenty years ago I had the camera of my dreams – a Nikon F4. It was a beast of a camera – large and heavy. The lenses were even heavier and together they could break anyones back, if worn for a day. Still – this was my dream camera. This was one of those times…
